Keeping Up With The 182 Day Solstice Challenge

So far, so good, in keeping up with Pat Sloan's 182 Day Solstice Challenge blocks.
It's a miracle! 
Maybe I shouldn't pat myself on the back too much since it only just started, but Pat's instructions 
make these so, so easy to put together I'm remaining hopeful I will keep up and make them all.

Block 1

Block 2

Block 3

I'm putting the In My Garden blocks together and hope to have the quilt top finished in a few days.
With it being cold outside I spent lots of time inside. I sewed, I watched five movies on TV,
 read two books, and enjoyed holding and petting  my two little bratty dogs.
They loved it and so did I!


  1. I cannot keep up with the Splendid Sampler Pat is doing but I will save and make some of these challenge blocks...eventually. I like your blocks Carol. I am looking forward to seeing how you make the rest of the blocks and what your quilt looks like. Happy winter sewing 😊

  2. Love the blocks. They're very pretty.

  3. You go girl. I have 3 projects from last year I failed. In Our Garden blocks are the only ones I kept up with... Your blocks are looking great!

  4. Lovely blocks. You are really embracing what January is all about...renewing our souls and beginning creative projects in this new year. Well done dear...XO

  5. Oooh Carol, they are like little gems. I love these
    Super pretty

  6. Great blocks. Love the green polka dot one! Good luck keeping up with the block challenge.

  7. love your blocks. am making mine in blue to tame the stash. hoping I can keep up. I have 4 done so far.....
